Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Master of Arts, New Testament Thesis Abstract: James uses the prophet Elijah as an example of righteous prayer.

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Doctor of Ministry Thesis-Project Abstract: This project proposes that theocentric preaching is a valid and necessary approach to preparing and presenting biblical sermons.

Theocentric preaching welcomes a Christocentric focus, since Christ's redemptive work is the...
